Gathering of Non-Personal Information
Like most website operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the Website. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Website choose to interact in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information such as names, email addresses and other contact information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who use our forums to provide a username and email address. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
Use, Disclosure and Protection of Personally-Identifying Information
We collect personally-identifying information to contact and correspond with visitors, to enable use of the Services, to understand visitors’ needs and develop and recommend suitable products and services, to process transactions, to facilitate and enhance use of the Website and to meet legal and regulatory requirements. If you are a registered user of the bctechfair.ca website and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with us and our products, unless you opt out of such communications. We primarily use our blog to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users
We disclose personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors, and affiliated organizations that: (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at the bctechfair.ca website; and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Website, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone.
We take all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration, or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.
